From #1 bestselling author James Patterson comes the ultimate legal thriller where the judge and jury are terrified. The verdict: run for your life. Failing to escape jury duty, aspiring actress Andie DeGrasse ends up as Juror #11 in a landmark case. In this new Trial of the Century, a Mafia don known as the Electrician is linked to hundreds of gruesome crimes. Tracking this ruthless killer for years, senior FBI agent Nick Pellisante fears that the defendant's power reaches far beyond the courtroom, even if the FBI's evidence is ironclad. Just as the jury finishes deliberations, the Electrician makes a devastating move that shocks the entire nation - and shatters Andie's world. Now she and Pellisante must hunt for the Electrician before he executes his most horrifying endgame.

I read a lot of James Patterson's books and I thought I knew his "moves" pretty well. Twice in Judge & Jury he really shocked me. Both events were unexpected and involved small children which made me a little uneasy. As is Patterson's fashion, the chapters were short and the read was very quick. The focus was more on thrilling and less on suspense or mystery and the book really hit the mark.
